WSU receipts over $700 million per year in revenues from various sources through its over-the-counter cashiering system (often referred to as the Point of Sale or POS system).  At the heart of the system is CORE Business Technologies’ One-Step payment processing software.   To accommodate web payments, CORE built five custom interfaces to the One Step program:  a Cougar Card web service;   EDC AIMS web service; the UREC shopping cart; credit card processing for WSU’s central payment site; and a PeopleSoft interface for customer identification,  balance presentment and real time update of customer accounts in the PeopleSoft Student Finance module.     

 In collaboration with University Information System Services and Network & Security Services, Treasury Management supports a total of 28 POS workstations at 16 customer service locations across WSU’s four campuses.  The Tri-Cities campus has one cashiering center.  There are two cashiering locations in Spokane, three in Vancouver and ten on the Pullman campus.
